The Jet Gives Props to Big Paper Daddy

Former Franklin High star Jason Terry, whose UW career was cut short before it started due to the snaky recruiting wiles of retired Arizona coach "Midnight" Lute Olson, is having a career year with the Dallas Mavericks, averaging nearly 20 points per game while staying a neck ahead of Nate Robinson in the race for the league's Sixth Man of the Year award. The last sixth man to average close to what Terry's averaging was Sonic Ricky "Big Paper Daddy" Pierce, whom the Jet says he modeled his game after as a young boy growing up in Seattle.

Once, when Terry encountered Pierce while the latter was with the Supes, Big Paper Daddy gave the young Jet the following, rather puzzling advice: "If you can shoot with the lights off, when the lights come on you'll be able to knock them down."
